How to Grow Amaryllis
- Plant a single bulb in a 6-7 inch flower pot or 3 bulbs in a 10 -12 inch pot. Make sure the flower pot is sturdy and heavy so the plant will not tip over when it reaches maturity.
- Use a fast-draining potting soil and cover the bulb leaving the tip of the bulb exposed.
- Place the pot in direct sunlight and water sparingly with lukewarm water.
- Your Amaryllis will begin to bloom in 8 – 10 weeks. Enjoy this stunning flower.
